3:02 am
from cnn world headquarter, in atlanta, this is "early start" weekend. it's the hotel at the center of the mysterious death of a tourist but not the first time a guest has checked in and never left. tomorrow may be hollywood's biggest night, but it's racing's biggest day. we'll take to you florida for a live look ahead at the daytona 500. and want that hollywood body without having to starve, purge and live at the gym? of course the answer is yes. desiree has inside tips to help you look like an oscar nominee. it's saturday, february 23rd. good morning, everyone. i'm victor blackwell. good to you have with us. randi kaye is off today. oscar pistorius is starting a new life, but one with significant restrictions on his
3:03 am
freedom. already a celebrity in his native south africa, pistorius is now a hunted man by paparazzi. look at this. after posting bond yesterday, photographers chased the olympic sprinter's car. pistorius must also adapt to these conditions set by a magistrate. he can't go back to his home. he had to give up his passport. he can't even go near an airport, surrendered weapons, can't drink alcohol and must report to police every monday and friday. a senior international correspondent, nic robertson, is covering the blade runner's case. i guess he can continue to train, but a lot has changed. >> reporter: his life has changed. it's turned around 180 degrees. he spent the night at his uncle's house according to local news reports. at least his uncle said he took a bath, has had some food to eat, indicating he really hadn't eaten much over the past six days while in jail, or been in detention, at least, and also that he wanted to speak with his
3:04 am
family. oscar pistorius wanted to speak to his own family as the death of reeva steenkamp. a strenuous schedule, get him back to training, his family concerned about his mental well-being. hard to see him getting on a running track and getting back to what he used to do, let alone competition. no international competition. his life is never going to be the same, victor. >> seeing all the changes and how they go until the start of the actual trial. nick ro nic robertson, thank you. oscar pistorius's, what do you believe? coming up we'll talk to a legal expert from south africa, and watch the a.c. 360 special. "blade runner: murder or mistake" tonight at 9:00 eastern on cnn. now that lance armstrong,
3:05 am
the government is getting involved in this case. the department of justice is joining a lawsuit against armstrong, and this stems from his admission that he used performance-enhancing drugs. you see, when he won all the tour de france titles he was riding for the u.s. postal service team, and the team was partially funded with money from the federal government. now the government wants some of that money back. joining me on the phone to talk about armstrong and his lawsuit is dave shields. he writes about cycling, has been helping us make sense of this armstrong story from the very beginning. dave, good to have you. the first question here is, you know, it's sad to say that people get over on the federal government all the time. why did the department of justice decide to join this lawsuit? was it public pressure? >> i'm not sure that it is public pressure. it was -- i think that on the part of the government, it might be a perception that it would be well-received, and it doesn't seem to be going over that way. a lot of people seem to be thinking just like you're
3:06 am
implying. that -- wow. lance has got his share of trouble, and it doesn't seem to stop. >> you're a cycling insider. tell us what the insiders think. where should this end or should they want to the see lance armstrong punished more? >> reporte >> i think there's a wide disparatesy what people think. now we know he's guilty and don't want to hear more. we just want to move on. as a sport, this whole story is damage to the sport, in a pretty big way, in terms of the public's perception of the sport and a lot of people are just tired of that. on the other hand, there's a lot of people who think, it's a good thing that -- that, you know, the truth is winning out, and that lance is going to have to pay a price for this. so -- >> yeah, price.
3:07 am
monetarily and otherwise, but let's talk about the money because he told oprah during that big interview that he had a $75 million day, where he lost all of the major endorsements. i mean, is there any way he were put this behind him monetarily? >> there's no way, in my mind, that lance is coming back economically, and, in other words, i think his brand is totally destroyed, and any thought on his part that he was going to save his brand by his admission is really -- it's just not going to work, because his admission, essentially -- he's a little bit different than other athletes who have had maybe falls from grace. a huge part of his popularity was due to his perceived integrity, and when he completely admits that he doesn't have integrity, i think it's going to be very difficult for anybody to trust him in the way that they in the past. impossible, as a matter of fact. >> major lawsuit, and there could be more.
3:08 am
dave shields, helping us understand this from start to finish. thank you. >> you bet. any time. in washington state, six underground tanks at the sprawling nuclear complex are leaking radioactive waste. there's no immediate public health risk, he says, but it's disturbing. last shut down in 1987. despite a massive cleanup effort, it's still the country's most contaminated nuclear site. not even microsoft is safe from hackers. it says hackers infected a small number of its computers with malicious software. it's investigating and says there's no evidence customer data was stolen, but hackers also recently attacked apple and facebook. investigators identify another victim in thursday's deadly shooting and a car crash on the las vegas strip. taxi passenger sandy sutton was killed when someone in a black range rover othered fire on a
3:09 am
maserati. the maserati crashed into the taxi, which burst into flames and the driver of the cab was killed. an autopsy is under way on the maserati driver. he's been identified at aspiring rapper kenneth cherry. police are still looking for the range rover mentioned. and $85 billion in cuts. when the numbers are that big, it's hard to put them into perspective, as cnn national correspondent jim acosta explains, that's exactly what the white house is at least trying to do. >> reporter: victor, the secretary of transportation used the word calamity to describe how the automatic spending cuts will impact air travelers across the country and how the white house is trying to bypass congress to win this budget battle. sitting down whip the japanese prime minister, president obama was all but saying, so long to congress, when it comes to those forced spending cuts now just
3:10 am
one week away. >> i will just keep on making my case not only to congress but more importantly to the american people. >> reporter: to make his case, the president is spending more time going over the heads of gop leaders, appearing on talk radio. >> so what i need listeners to do more than snig just put a little bit of pressure on congress, as usual, to get their act together and do the right thing. >> reporter: the white house also sent out transportation secretary ray la hood to worn how the cuts will impact air travel. 47,000 federal aviation employees would face furloughs meaning fewer in the towers and small delays. in smaller airports, air traffic controllers could be closed altogether. >> experience delays up to 90 minutes during peak hours. >> reporter: lahood urged republicans in congress to see the movie "lincoln" to learn how to work together. >> now, now -- >> first of all, you're getting an acting performance, because
3:11 am
you are -- you're going to be scaring the public today. this is going to be scaring the public about their travel plans. >> well, we'll see what the reaction of the public is. what i'm trying to do is to wake up members of the congress on the republican side to the idea that they need to come to the table, offer a proposal, so that we don't have the to have this kind of calamity in air service in america. >> reporter: but on twitter, white house press secretary jay carney in the speaker's office traded tweets over who's to blame with carney noting a poll showing the americans support the president's view on reduction. public opinion is on their side, they believe. >> the fact of the matter is we can't get anything done without a bill passing the house of representatives. >> reporter: some republicans say, hold on. senator coburn sent a letter to the white house asking why some administration officials are spending money traveling the country advises communities on
3:12 am
how to secure federal dollars saying it is important that we as public officials lead by example, but that won't stop washington's latest game of budget chicken, one the president seems comfortable playing. >> unlike issues like the debt ceiling, the sequester going into effect will not threaten, you know, the world financial system. >> reporter: administration officials says once again they're open to a short-term deal to head off the budget cuts, but in the meantime the president still plans to travel to virginia next week to visit a naval ship builder he says will take a direct hit if these cuts go through. >> just six days. jim acosta, thanks. nuew england is getting reay for its third straight weekend of snow. enough is enough now. two weeks after a blizzard buried this region. today's storm could bring as much as a foot and a half of snow to some places. this storm already pummelaled the northwest.

pulling for him. a doctor from upstate new york. reporter susan candiotti met the doctor. >> reporter: near albany, new york, orthopedic surgeon joe marada specializes in healing broken bones, but among his friends, someone who helps heal broken souls. what is it like knowing someone who could be the next pope? >> well, it's very exciting. >> reporter: vatican-bashaned cardinal peter turkson, he would be the first black pope and a rare non-european. >> my idol. >> reporter: the two met a few years ago when his pastor introduced his colleague peter, and peter turned out to be -- >> turned out to it be cardinal peter turkson president of the pontifical at the vatican and close adviser to the holy father.

>> reporter: the doctor has since done surgely in ghana and is raising money for an orthopedic clinic there. when the cardinal visits albany about once a year he often stops to say mass at this small parish, saint joan of arc where this doctor attends. he attended seminary and on ap recent u.s. trip, he picked him up at the airport. as he dozed off, he couldn't help budget think -- >> here's a man that could be the next pope. i got a little nervous and started to take my foot off the gas and slowed way down. >> reporter: if cardinal turkson is elected, dr. marada predicts high energy but has a low expectation for major change. >> he has told me that, i need to understand that the church is thousands of years old. that change and adoption of new ideas in the church by necessity

filed in 60 days. oscar pistorius is free on bail after a magistrate's ruling. he's due back in court june 4th facing a charge of premeditated murder in the killing of her girlfriend, reeva steenkamp. her father spoke to a south african newspaper. if he speaks the truth, her father said, i can some day forgive him. if it did not happen as he told it, he must suffer. described to cnn's jake tapper. >> what would you like people to know about reeva? what kind of person was she? >> she was a most amazing human being. she was kind to everybody. she was always concerned about everybody else's well-being, more than her own, and always looked after everybody and i just feel nobody ever got the chance to look after her. >> oscar pistorius's legal team won a big victory in getting him released on bail, but that
3:35 am
achievement could come at a cost as this case moves forward. law professor at south africa's university. david, thanks for being with us. >> good morning. >> you followed this four-day hearing very closely. what surprised you the most about the defense team's presentation? >> well, of course, there was a lot of drama because of the notoriety of mr. pistorius, but the fact is that the defense was driven to put up a good deal of detail about its case, which is quite a risk in the light of the fact that ultimately mr. pistorius is going to have to stand trial and the minute details of the statements made will be subject to very careful scrutiny. >> i think one of the things that surprised a lot of people in the u.s. who watched this was that the judge, the magistrate hearing went on and on and on for two hours before delivering this ruling.
3:36 am
why did this go on for so long? >> well, i think he obviously realized that he had the eyes of the world upon him, and he wanted to make sure that he did a thorough job. it was probably a little longer than it needed to be, but he was careful to set out the law and explain the factors that led limb to the conclusion which he did, which is that ultimately mr. pistorius should be admitted to bail. perhaps longer than it should have been but clearly he realized everybody wanted him to do a good job and i think he did a reasonably good job. >> one change after the ly 250, rand. what was that about? >> i think it was really about the manner in which the amount could be paid. given that the ruling came down on a friday afternoon, it wasn't very easy for him to pay the million rand right there and then and so there were some negotiations to ensure that he
3:37 am
paid 100,000 grand immediately and then the rest of security woi have to find in the next few days. it was simply to admit him to bailened go home and not have to spend the weekend in prison. >> david, one of the interesting story lines here came out in the middle of the week. this lead investigator now himself faces attempted murder charges. how much of a distraction is this and how much does it jeopardize the credibility of the state's case? >> well, i don't think it ultimately makes a great deal of difference to the state's case. it certainly made a difference in the way the magistrate assessed the bail hearing because the match state didn't do well under cross-examination and deeply regrettable that he himself should be the subject of criminal charges. it's not that atypical that officers are accused.
3:38 am
regrettable it came out in the way, probably shouldn't have been put on the case to begin with, but he was and didn't do perhaps as well as he might have. but i didn't think it will great ly be bad for the case because it wills a will -- >> maybe a year out from the start of the trial. thank you so much. a mysterious death has really stumped the los angeles police officers. a canadian tourist found dead in the water tower of a skid row hotel. it's another page in the hotel's mysterious past.

a regular guy with an irregular heartbeat. the usual, bob? not today. [ male announcer ] bob has afib: atrial fibrillation not caused by a heart valve problem, a condition that puts him at greater risk for a stroke. [ gps ] turn left. i don't think so. [ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin, and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but not anymore. bob's doctor recommended a different option: once-a-day xarelto®. xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce the risk of an afib-related stroke. there is limited data on how these drugs compare when warfarin is well managed. no routine blood monitoring means bob can spend his extra time however he likes. new zealand! xarelto® is just one pill a day, taken with the evening meal.
3:58 am
and with no dietary restrictions, bob can eat the healthy foods he likes. do not stop taking xarelto® rivaroxaban without talking to the doctor who prescribes it for you. stopping may increase your risk of having a stroke. get medical help right away if you develop any signs or symptoms of bleeding, like unusual bruising or tingling. you may have a higher risk of bleeding if you take xarelto® with aspirin products, nsaids or blood thinners. talk to your doctor before taking xarelto® if you currently have abnormal bleeding. xarelto® can cause bleeding, which can be serious, and rarely may lead to death. you are likely to bruise more easily on xarelto®, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. tell your doctors you are taking xarelto® before any planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. ready to change your routine? ask your doctor about once-a-day xarelto®. for more information including cost support options, call 1-888-xarelto or visit goxarelto.com.
